The Avant-Garde Theater
THEA 306
Spring 2008 not offered

Twentieth-century avant-garde theater was shaped by multiple artistic voices seeking to respond and/or resist rapidly changing historical and political circumstances. Each one of these movements represents a dynamic, diverse but cumulative rupture with the mainstream. In addition to a broader understanding of 20th-century avant-garde history, this course will expose the ways in which theoretical frames and theatrical practice dialogued. Such knowledge will lead to a clearer insight of how the transformations desired by each movement/artist took place both theoretically and practically, provoked the audience to change its perception of the world and of art, and ultimately affects how we see and produce art today.
